Last Sunday was emotional for most GMA Artist Center talents as the Sunday noontime show that eventually became an afternoon show aired its farewell episode.
GMA Network announced the cancellation of the show via the introduction of its replacement last week. The show takes over the axed show on Aug. 9, Sunday, of course, and it comes in at noontime for a head-on collision with the rival’s long running noontime show.
The newest comedy-musical variety program on the Kapuso lot is called Sunday PinaSaya. We hope it would really make the audience happy as the title suggests.
Guess who will be in the show.
Oh, well, AiAi delas Alas will be the anchor comedian and around her will be the tried-and-tested guys in the daily noontime show Eat Bulaga, like Jose Manalo and Wally Bayola.
Now on her second trimester of pregnancy, Marian Rivera is also in the roster of hosts. She will be working until she can, just before she drops, of course.
The program redefines the usual variety show, as it gives the viewers unparalleled production numbers featuring the hottest celebrities, comedy sketches and fun-filled games. So, the artists of GMA Artist Center still have the chance to be in the show.
Ai-Ai admits that she couldn’t wait for the show to start. “Sabi ko, parang game na ba ‘to? Kailan na ba magsisimula?’ Tapos ayan na, game na talaga. Excited ako kasi this show is comedy based. Patatawanin muna namin kayo bago namin kayo mas lalong pasasayahin sa hatid naming mga papremyo. At marami pa rin silang dapat abangan na mga bonggang performances mula sa kanilang mga paboritong artista.”
Marian is also excited because the program promises a new Sunday variety show experience. “Patatawanin namin sila, magbibigay kami ng papremyo, at makikita nila ang iba’t ibang klaseng talento ng mga cast dito. At ang maganda sa Sunday PinaSaya, hindi lang kami yung makakasama nila dito dahil every Sunday ay may mga Kapuso tayo na pwedeng mag-guest sa show. So everybody’s welcome sa Sunday PinaSaya.”
Excep someone we all know, but I’m not saying who.
Also in the new Sunday variety show are Alden Richards, Julie Anne San Jose, Barbie Forteza, Joey Paras, Valeen Montenegro, and Jerald Napoles, who according to the people behind the new show will give Sunday PinaSaya more fun and laughter.
Believe it or not, on Sunday, over P10 million worth of prizes will be given away, all tax free.
